in their campaign mode, even though they should be in their governing mode. if you listen to marco rubio, honestly, it was a flash back to the '80s. government can't help you and the rest. we had heard that song before. the people have rejected it. they wanted a government that works for them. i have been so honored to be here for a while and i've served with five presidents and i know when they're in touch with the people and when they're not. this president is in touch with the people. he's in sync with the people. whether it's the women, the middle class, grandmas and grandpas, fighting for oir children to protect them from gun violence, fighting for their jobs, you go through it. he reflects the american people and the republicans are still in that campaign mode and they can't get over it. and it's sad. it's sad for the country. >> let me hold you right to that point. we've seen presidents and we know the partisan differences. but when you have boehner not standing up for the military, some couldn't stand up when the president praised our diplomats, intelligence officers and the men and women
. and you know it was coming, the late night comedians have a field day with rubio's water fail. >> nothing has frustrated me more than false choices like the one the president laid out tonight. >> don't worry, senator rubio. nobody noticed that you gave a speech. >> it's a big valentine's day show. stay with us. victor! victor! i got your campbell's chunky soup. mom? who's mom? i'm the giants mascot. the giants don't have a mascot! ohhh! eat up! new jammin jerk chicken soup has tasty pieces of chicken with rice and beans. hmmm. for giant hunger! thanks mom! see ya! whoaa...oops! mom? i'm ok. grandma? hi sweetie! she operates the head. [ male announcer ] campbell's chunky soup. it fills you up right. but, dad, you've got... [ voice of dennis ] allstate. with accident forgiveness, they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid. [ voice of dennis ] indeed. are you in good hands? >>> have you joined the "politics nation" conversation on facebook yet? we hope you will. everyone is talking about president obama's push to increase the minimum wage. johnny says raisin
. >>> meanwhile, marco rubio, mr. gulp fiction himself, is out praising freshman senator ted cruz and tweeting happy to see ted cruz came to d.c. to make a difference, not just make some friends. yes, rubio thinks this guy is a super star. >> we need to eliminate unnecessary institutions. >> we are living in the days of atlas shrubs. >> i will never support new taxes. period. the end. >> i think it's time for some more meetings. joining me now are angela rye and dana millbank. is this really the master plan to save the party? >> you know, it's just so hard to keep abreast of all of ted cruz's out rages. he's been on the job for six weeks and he's already sort of rivaling joe mccarthy. you know, in fairness to karl rove, he is telling the republicans what they need to hear. and i suspect republican leaders would like to do it. the problem is you can see like a guy from ted cruz, there's no way to control him. he has this swollen sense of his own importance. and he's made -- look, obviously, he's infur rating the democrats. but even members of his own party are starting to get sore about this. t
with them. but he'll also be speaking to four individuals, senator marco spsz rubio on imgrags. congress paul ryan on the budget and jusz tis anthony kennedy on the same-sex marriage. how important is that to the president's agenda and the future of the country? >> he needs to make sure he brings folks like rubio who is on the citizen ship from immigration. he needs to show an olive branch to him that he's going to help him along. with senator finestein, he needs to say i'm going to stand next to you. but with kennedy, it's going to be curious. he has to drill in to kennedy that kennedy can be the vote that basically cements his legacy of whether or not he did decide to pass same-sex marriage. the more he can emphasize that tomorrow, the president, on the state of the union, i think can move him along to make sure he does the right thing, as well. >>. >> now, angela, there's been some tension e tension on whether thern going to play with age requirements for medicare. the white house, today, took that off the table. they ruled out raising the medicare eligibility age to cut spending. hoi
're the base. the question for republicans isn't how you rebut this president tonight, what will marco rubio do? the question for republicans is can they connect with mainstream america? and if you cannot talk to values, if you cannot talk to aspirations of the middle class, they're never going to get there. ted nugent isn't going to take them there. >> people need to be reminded to what nugent said. you can be conservative, you can be republican, you can be one that doesn't agree with the president. but ted nugent, why would a congressman bring -- let me see if i can play for people what ted nugent said. >> barack obama becomes the president in november again, i will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. >> now, why would you bring someone like that as your guest to the state of the union address and you are a republican congressman? >> they're not taking either the night seriously, they're not taking politics seriously. it's politics as a show. that may work on some cable news channels, but again, how does this party -- how do republicans speak to real voters' concerns. this is th
